The Joe Biden administration has announced its plans to provide $14 million annually over the next decade to the Mozambique province of Cabo Delgado in an effort to rebuild the region after it was overrun by Islamic terrorists in recent months.
InfoWars host Owen Shroyer broke down the issue and why this is a problem. “That would be nice if we can afford something like that,” Shroyer said. “But we can’t.”
The funding was announced by U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland on June 14, after Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi granted her an audience.
The sum of $14 million a year will allow the U.S. government to work on the reconstruction of Cabo Delgado and the rest of the country. In training young people for employment, it is also discouraging them from being recruited by the terrorists, according to Nuland.
“The fund has already been approved by the United States Congress, and the agreement could be signed within the next two months,” she said.
Cabo Delgado, a coastal province in Mozambique’s north, was besieged by jihadist terrorists in March 2021, and the insurgency forced the French energy giant Total to halt all operations at its natural gas processing plant near the Cabo Delgado resort town of Palma the month after, effectively shutting down the regional economy.
Total’s natural gas liquefaction plant near Palma accounted for the single largest source of foreign investment in Africa at $20 billion before it was forced to cease production.
The jihadist raid on Palma was perpetrated by hundreds of terrorists allied with the group “Al-Shabaab,” which is the colloquial name for a Mozambique affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). However, Mozambique’s Al-Shabab is distinct from Somalia’s own terror group, which is loyal to al-Qaeda.

“That’s $140 million for Mozambique. Have you been to New York City lately? It’s a s***hole,” Shroyer said. “But hey, let’s build Mozambique. You’re gonna be going to Mozambique soon.”
Biden to implement a 10-year strategy to contain conflicts
Biden’s implementation to contain conflicts in Mozambique, among other countries, is based on a law approved by Congress in 2019, establishing that $200 million per year must be allocated to development plans that create long-term stability.
The countries that will benefit from the funds include Mozambique, Haiti, Libya, Papua New Guinea, Benin, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea and Togo. A letter made public by the White House also noted that the United States should have a leadership position and be a “force for peace and stability,” with which other governments can work together.
The same document also said the new strategy represents a reaffirmation of the U.S. leadership to face current challenges, including pandemics, the climate crisis and the rise of autocracies that believe democracy “cannot thrive in the 21st century.”
These moves by Biden also had Americans questioning his priorities. The $14 million a year to Mozambique could be put instead toward improving the U.S., especially as it is being impacted by the global inflation.
The U.S. is giving all of its money away to foreign aid, most of which may just end up getting stolen, because all the countries that the U.S. provide foreign aid to never seem to improve.

“Just look at Central America. Look at Haiti. And now probably Mozambique. If it’s really overrun by radical Islamic terrorists – where do you think that money is gonna go, folks? What do you think is gonna happen in Mozambique with that money?” he asked.
This is similar to the U.S. giving $100 billion to Ukraine, Shroyer pointed out.
“You’re working five jobs to keep a roof over your head and gas in your car and food on the table. Biden can sign checks to foreign countries while the fall of stock market has wiped out $3 trillion in retirement savings this year,” he said.
“I bet you in three months or in six months or in a year, inflation ain’t going down, folks. It’s only going up.”
